Like most games, Roblox on Xbox does offer you to play with your friends on other platforms. Because of this, you are able to expect to meet tons of friends inside each of the popular games. You will be able to continue playing with your friends by adding them within the game. Of course, it is a different process compared to PC and mobile.
Adding friends in-game
The first thing that you have to do is both of you should be on the same game server, regardless of what platform they are on. So, as long as you see them in front of you, this should not be an issue. To make sure that you are both on the same server, you need to try to join a game at the same time. Then, you have to press RB next to their character, and a menu should appear after a moment. On the left side of the menu, there is going to be an “add friend” option. A request can be sent from there. If they add you, they are only going to appear on your friends list on the Roblox main menu. When you are adding them via Roblox, they will not appear on your Xbox friends list.
To make you understand, in the text below, once again, we are going to share three points to play with your Roblox friends on Xbox One. Do the following steps!
- Once both users press Play on the same game page simultaneously, then they are going to have more of an opportunity to play in the same server
- To make sure that you get into the same game, you need to join first. Then your friends on the other platform will be able to open your profile and click Join Game
- When both are Xbox users, and are both connected on Xbox One, then they are able to join each other through the Friends screen by choosing them and joining their game.
Adding friends who are on Xbox
Apparently, playing with other friends that are also on Xbox is easier. One of you needs to search the other’s gamertag on the Xbox’s Friends tab. After a friend request is accepted, you are easily able to join their game by going into their Xbox profile at any time. Technically, you will not be friends inside of Roblox by doing this, however joining friends’ servers is going to be much less of a hassle.
Where do you see your sent friend requests on Roblox Xbox one?
If you want to see your sent friend requests on Roblox Xbox one, simply you are able to tap the ‘More’ button at the bottom of the screen. After that, you have to tap ‘Friends’. Here you are going to see all requests. Please tap ‘Accept’ on the ones you want to accept.
How to Play a Roblox Game on Xbox One App?
An Xbox One is required for play, as well as an Xbox Live Gold account and an Internet connection. You are able to find Roblox in the Xbox Live store. Of course, it is free. There are lots of different games that you can play with Roblox. When you first start out you are able to find them in the Home screen and Games screen. After you have played some games, you will also be able to find your recently played games in the Home screen. Each game inside Roblox on Xbox One is going to have slightly different rules, controls, and game mechanics. However, the general controls are going to be the same.
For your information, you are able to access this controller map at any time in-game by clicking on the “Roblox Menu” button. Then choose the Settings option (press up on the left thumb-stick). Next, you are able to click the RB (Right Bumper) to access the Help tab.
Are Other Roblox features Like Chat, and Groups Available on Xbox?
You are able to receive friend requests when playing Roblox on any platform. Also, you are able to view your online Xbox friends from the Friends tab in Xbox and make a party to play with them. To see all of your friends, or accept/reject friend requests, you are able to do so by logging into your Roblox account on another platform such as PC or Mobile.
Xbox One App: Voice Chat
On Xbox One, Roblox has an integrated voice chat system which allows you to chat with your friends and also party members.
- In-Game Chat
If a microphone is connected via a headset or Kinect, automatically you are placed into voice chat with other players in the game you joined. For note: Voice communication has to be enabled in Xbox Settings.

Roblox allows for the use of Xbox Live Party Chat with your Xbox Live friends. When active, automatically this feature overrides in-game chat. For note: You are able to switch to in-game chat by going to the “Your party” panel in Xbox and choosing “Switch to game chat”.
